To do this I looked at a single zone on the upstairs heat pump that controls the temperature for the two guest bedrooms. During this past summer when the guest bedrooms were not in use the thermostat was set to 80 degrees. When we did have a guest using one of the bedrooms, the thermostat was set to 76. The rest of the house is set to 76.
Below are the graphs for the attic and outside temperatures during those 6 days. The data graphed in red is the attic temperatures, blue is the outside temperature.
